Early this morning I dreamt that I had soaked this quilt in cold salt water in the tub to set the colors (something I haven't considered!). In this dream, the colors faded completely away. Then when I examined it closer, I had quilted the backing over the top! Needless to say, I awoke with a start!!!! I think that all this anxiety is because this is my first attempt to use batiks. I never prewash either. Probably not the best combo!!! Any suggestions would be wonderful!!
Actually, the quilting is going well. I am done with the middle, and I'm on the borders. Quilting the borders with lavender thread thanks to a tip from Joan. She has some wondermous quilts, so be sure to stop over and visit her.
Anyhow, I am happy that this quilt is nearing the end. Bummer though, FedEx isn't delivering my Hancock's order (shipped Feb 9th) because of the weather. I am "needing" the fabric to finish my siggy babies quilt. That means that I need to get a move on and finish this quilt, as well as some not so fun sewing so that I must do. Then I am free to create!!!! I guess it is just as well that I don't have that fabric to tempt me from duty!!! ;0)
Blessings (and sweet quilty dreams) to you all,
